Lippert Components Camper Jack - LC285318

Powered A-frame jack has 2 toggle switches for operation. Jack has a retracted height of 10-3/4", an extended height of 28-3/4", and 18" of travel. Includes a manual override handle.


Features:

  • Electric jack lets you raise and lower your A-frame trailer quickly and easily
  • 2 Toggle switches on the front of the housing let you operate the jack
    • On/off switch controls the light
    • Extend/retract switch controls up and down movement
  • Helical-cut gears with angled teeth gradually mesh for quiet, efficient operation
  • LED light illuminates at a downward angle to help you focus on your coupler
  • Emergency crank (included) allows you to manually operate jack if needed
  • Heavy-gauge steel construction ensures durability and strength
  • Black powder coat finish resists rust and corrosion
  • Durable, textured-housing prevents chips and cracks
  • Easy bolt-on installation
    • Wires to 12-volt power source


Specs:

  • Bracket height:
    • Retracted: 10-3/4"
    • Extended: 28-3/4"
  • Lift: 18"
  • Outer tube diameter: 2-1/4"
  • Inner tube diameter: 2"
  • Footplate diameter: 5-1/2"
  • Motor voltage: 12 volts
    • Power consumption: 30 amps
  • Lift capacity: 3,500 lbs
  • 1-Year limited warranty


This jack will take the work out of lifting and lowering your trailer. The 30-amp motor ensures trouble-free operation and consistent power with the flip of a switch - no need for a crank. It also has helical-cut gears, which have angled teeth that mesh together clearly. This allows for quieter, more efficient operation than a jack that uses a standard Acme screw.


To ensure great performance even at night, this jack also comes with a front-facing light that houses 3 LEDs. The light is directed at a downward angle allowing for easy deployment and retraction of the jack in low-light settings. The unit also comes with a manual crank handle in case you lose power.


This jack can be bolted or welded onto your A-frame coupler, or it can sit in a brace behind the coupler. As with other Lippert jacks, it is constructed of powder coated steel to ensure that it will resist rust and corrosion and hold up well to the elements. The housing on the jack protects the internal components, and it has a durable, UV-resistant coating that resists chips, cracks, and fading.


You always want to be sure when purchasing a tongue jack that the jack capacity at least matches your trailer's tongue weight (TW). Your trailer's TW should be around 10 percent to 15 percent of your gross trailer weight (GTW), which is the weight of your trailer when it's fully loaded. So if you have a 5,000-lb trailer you would want a jack that can support at least 500 lbs to 750 lbs.

Video Transcript for Lippert Components Camper Jack - A-Frame Jack - LC285318 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Lippert Components power tongue jack. This power tongue jack raises and lowers RV's, 5th wheels, and all types of trailers. Really helps save time and energy instead of cranking a manually operated jack. This is going to have a capacity of 3,500 pounds. It's going to provide an 18" stroke or lift. The black color is going to match most trailers, it's going to match most applications, and it's a really nice steel construction. Nice durable design, it's going to have a powder coated finish on the outer tube and then a zinc plated finish on the inner tube and the foot plate, that's really going to help protect the unit from rust and corrosion. Right here, you're going to have an LED light panel.

This is going to make it easier to work in the dark or low light conditions. It's going to cast light at a downward angle so that way you can really see what you're doing when you're working in the area around the jack, so coupling or disconnecting, connecting, whatever it may be. Located right here's going to be the control panel. It's going to feature enhanced rocker switches, it's going to improve durability. One control is going to extend and retract the jack. The other control right here is going to turn on and turn off the LED light source. The unit's going to feature helical cut gears that's going to help reduce noise and improve the overall operation of the jack.

In the housing right here at the head, that's going to have a nice durable, textured casing that's really going to help prevent chips and cracks. It's also going to offer increased UV protection to keep the housing from fading. It does come with the removable foot plate so that can easily be taken off; that's just held on to that inner tube with a standard pin and clip. The foot plate is going to help spread out the applied weight. It's even going to help on softer surfaces to prevent sinking. That foot plate has a diameter of 5 1/2" and the unit's also going to come with a manual crank handle, nice design there, that way if you ever run into an emergency situation where you need to manually operate the jack, you can easily do so. To gain access to the area where the crank handle would connect, that's going to be this plug right here on top.

I find it easiest to push in the middle and that's going to prop up one edge. Then you can just pull that out and that's going to gain access to the connection point for the crank handle. This is a weather tight seal, so you put that back in and you just push it back down. That's going to create a nice tight seal, ensuring that things don't get in to that area and cause rust and corrosion. It's going to do a good job at keeping out moisture.

It's going to do a good job at keeping out dirt and grime. Really nice tight design, all you've got to do is get everything lined up, push it back down, and again that's going to create a a really nice tight seal. This is going to run off of 12-volt DC power. It has a max draw of 30 AMPs. It does come with a 30 AMP fuse; it's in the fuse holder right here on the power wire. Single wire design for power, the unit's going to ground through the mounting hardware. It's a bolt-on installation, mounting hardware is included. It's easily going to bolt to standard A-frame trailers. This is going to be 3/8" diameter bolts so again, mounting hardware is included. Nice mounting plate right there as well with the holes already pre-drilled for it. When it comes to the inner tube diameter, that's going to measure 2". Outer tube diameter is 2 1/4". Again, the capacity on the jack is 3,500 pounds. It's going to provide an 18" stroke or 18" lift. A few measurements I just want to mention for you real quick before I show you how the jack operates, right now it's in the fully retracted position. The bracket height, I measured from the bottom of the bracket to the ground with the jack in the fully retracted position. With the footplate installed that gave us a measurement of 10 3/4". Without the footplate installed is 9". I also extended the jack as high as it would go, fully extended, and in that same measurement from the ground to the bottom of the mounting plate was 28 3/4" with the footplate installed; 27" without the footplate installed. From the bottom of the mounting bracket to the very top of the jack measured around 21 1/2". It really does offer nice operation. It's a very well-made jack. I'm going to hook it up to power, that way we can see exactly how it operates, how it functions. That's just our power wire and I'm simply making a ground connection here. This switch right here is going to control the on and off functions of the light. You just got to get a good ground connection and then you'll see how that kicks on. I can turn off the overhead lights so you can see it in a lower light setting. You can see that that casts light at a downward angle, which is really going to help illuminate the work area around the jack; especially in low light conditions or at night time. When you're ready to operate the jack, you've got the extend and retract button right here. It's fully retracted right now so if we want to extend it, all you have to do is push down. Really nice, quiet operation and again, that's going to provide 18" of lift. Retracts very easily as well and again, those helical cut gears is going to help cut down the amount of noise that you have with this jack. It's also going to provide for just overall better performance and smoother operation. That's going to do it for today's look at the Lippert Components power tongue jack.

well I have taken numerous camping trips with this jack and so far I am very pleased. one note is that if you don't have a dedicated ground wire you will need to make one on the camper or the jack will not operate. I figured that out right off the bat. It does move fairly slow, but hey I guess you don't want it moving too fast or you could over shoot your limits that can make the jack blow the 30 amp fuse. Yes I would highly recommend this jack. I have noticed that this jack is installed on a lot of brand new campers at the factory, so it must be a good jack. Highly recommend!!! 505078

Very well! After numerous camping trips the jack has performed flawlessly!

It will be a while before I can install. Winter storm coming. The order was filled in a timely manner and I relied on the company from a previous order for a brake controller/cable to fit my Jeep Grand Cherokee. The factory packaging however, was insufficient to restrain and prevent the triangular mounting flange on the lower end from punching through the cardboard packaging. The result was minor scratching and removal of paint on a corner tip of the flange. There was no evidence of anything in the package to restrain the lower end from traveling vertically up and down toward the area where it punched through. So..I'd blame it on Lippert for insufficient product package restraints. 487691


Comments

The Jack initially worked fine with the exception of the LED light. I reported my trouble shooting information to etrailer pinpointing the LED board. You were able to have a new board sent to me for replacement and everything worked well all summer after the replacement. The technical guidance you provided on how to open and access the case was first rate, but in this case, I needed to buy a longer screwdriver for the deeply recessed screws.

My husband was able to install this tongue jack by himself within just a few minutes. It was quite literally take the old one off and pop the new one in and attach it to the battery. He said it took longer to take the manual jack off than it did to install the electric jack. The price from etrailer was much less than our local camper dealership was asking for a like product. 410452

Well, thanks for following up with me. I haven't installed the jack yet but will in a few days. I have noticed that the instruction sheet is not very helpful especially when you need to know the gauge of wire to that you can buy the right connector. It look so be 8-10 gauge. Also, in my set up, the length of wire provided is too short. So am going to have to splice a and additional piece in to reach my junction box. Do you have any suggestions on the best way to do that? It will be an easy install my problem is that I have removed the batteries for winter storage and the only way I can test the unit once installed is by hooking up the electricity. Hard to do when your RV in covered for the winter. I am waiting for a warmer day to do that. Anyway, thought that you would to know. Only a 3 for now but I would expect to change that to 5 once I have the wiring situation figured out. I'll let you know. 469665


Comments

Thank you for your review. Typically the powered jacks are wired straight to the battery but wiring it to the junction box will work. You would need a 10 gauge wire such as part # 10-1-1
10 Gauge Primary Wire - Blue - per Foot
$1.37
and heat shrink butt connectors such as part # DW05745-10
Deka Heat Shrink Butt Connector - 12-10 Gauge - Nylon Insulation - Yellow - Qty 10
$8.77
. I am not sure what connections you have on your junction box but we do have ring terminals you could use. Such as part # 44-5310A
Ring Terminal - 12-10 Gauge Wire - 3/16" Ring ID
$0.43
or part # DW05705-1
Ring Terminal - 12-10 Gauge Wire - 3/8" Ring ID
$1.41
. I hope this helps.

The product worked as advertised and I am completely satisfied with it. Winter is harsh here in Utah so we will see how it goes when we pull out the trailer and start camping again. I do not expect that we will have issues but if we do I will let you know.

First of all , My compliments to the shipping department. I was actually impressed the way that the trailer jack factory package was secured in the etrailer outer shipping box. Since I was basically just replacing a old jack that I damaged with a new one, the installation was easy. All works great, exceeds my expectations . 556049

Shopping with etrailer has always been a great experience. Great pricing great follow-up and fast shipping..!! As far as the jack, Lippert makes a great product. This is the same OEM jack offered on many pull behind trailers. Haven't got it installed yet but I'm sure its going to be good to go. As for the Westlake tires, this is the same brand that came on my trailer OEM, I like them. I'm a little disappointed that the date code shows a build date of 2016.. but unless you hand pick your tires at a shop you're going to run into that when buying tires online. they come with a 5-year warranty and 2 years roadside assistance 469481

This item was purchased to replace a 2010 LCI jack on which the plastic housing disintegrated, even though it was usually covered. Since we were unable to obtain a replacement housing, we bought a whole new jack. We have not installed the new jack yet (so can't give 5 stars), but the plastic housing on the new jack appears to be superior to the old one, so, happy with that. etrailer.com is a very nice business to work with. This is our second order. 280548

My experience with etrailer.com was excellent! My trailer jack was eligible for free shipping and still received it in just 3 days from the date I ordered it. Installed the jack the same day received. It was simple to install and worked great without any problems. Very pleased with the whole order experience with etrailer.com. Fast service, good product that was what was described, and good quality. 528621

Very satisfied with the power center pole. Installation from start to finish was less than a half hour. Mounting holes lined up exactly with old one we replaced. We got a tip from an experienced RV’er. The Plastic housing of the old unit became brittle, cracked and eventually stopped working after just 5 years. We store our RV outside without a cover. The tip was to place a plastic water bucket upside down over the power head and hook the tow safety chain to the bucket handle to keep it in place. We’ve not noticed any wear or discoloration on the new one. Our RV gross weight is over 8700 lbs and this unit handles that weight with no problem. Two friends purchased same model. 557680

Do you have a question about this Camper Jack?


  • Replacement Jack for Lippert Electric Ground Control TT Travel Trailer Leveling System
  • I believe the leveIing system you have is the Electric Ground Control TT Automatic 5-Point Travel Trailer Leveling System # LC672136, based on the model jack you said it had. I spoke with a representative of Lippert who said that Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 can be used as a replacement for the damaged jack from the leveling system; additionally, he told me that you would be able to disconnect the wires from the original jack and re-wire them onto the same location of the...

I reached out to a representative of Lippert, who explained that while there was no wiring diagram available, when installing the Replacement Extend / Retract Switch Assembly # LC226023 in your Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318, it will wire up exactly the same as the original, so what you can do before removing the original switch is take a photo...

  • Lippert Power Tongue Trailer Jack Switch Replacement Recommendation
  • For a Lippert Power Tongue Jack the correct replacement switch is the Replacement Extend / Retract Switch Assembly for Lippert Components Power Tongue Jack # LC226023.

Especially since it will raise but not lower and raising would draw more amperage than lowering.

  • Mounting Hole Pattern of Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack
  • The 3-bolt mounting flange on the Lippert Electric A-Frame Trailer Jack # LC285318 has a standardized hole pattern. This jack is intended to mount so that the included LED light faces forward toward the tow vehicle to illuminate the coupler and hitch ball. In the specs for this jack I saw nothing mentioned about rotating it. Similar electric A-frame jacks like # JET-3755 that also has an LED light built-in use a round mounting flange that has a similar mounting hole pattern. You are...

  • Replacement Foot Needed for a Lippert # 1817941 Electric Jack
  • The Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 is the replacement jack for your 1817941 jack and it has a 2" diameter inner tube. This jack uses the Replacement Jack Foot Pad # LC165253 which fits with the 2" diameter inner tube. If your jack has the same inner tube diameter then you want this part number over the part # LC405217 that has a 1-1/2" tube diameter. I have attached a photo with some dimensions listed so you can confirm a fit on your end before purchasing.

  • How to Determine Correct Electric A-Frame Jack for Travel Trailer
  • The correct jack will have a capacity that will surpass your trailer's loaded tongue weight, which is typically between 10 and 15 percent of the loaded trailer's weight. I looked up your 2013 Jayco Jay Feather Ultra Lite Travel Trailer and from my research it looks like your Jayco has a 4,750 lb GVWR so any one of our A-frame jacks would work in terms of weight capacity. The Electric Jack w/ Footplate # EJ-3520-WBX could be a great option; it has a 3,500 lb lift capacity, an extended...

  • Lippert Electric Trailer Jack Will Not Retract
  • If the Lippert Electric Trailer Jack with Footplate part # LC285318 will not retract then the first thing you will want to do is make sure there is power reaching the jack and it is properly grounded. If you use a circuit tester at the power wire just before it enters the jack that should give you a good idea of whether or not you have a dead battery or there is a short on the power wire. The ground is not so easy to test so I just recommend removing it, sanding down the mounting surface,...

  • How to Wire the Toggle Switches on the Lippert Electric Trailer Jack LC285318
  • I spoke to my contact at Lippert about wiring the toggle switches for the Lippert Electric Trailer Jack with Footplate part # LC285318. They stated that they don't have any schematics on this unfortunately but what we were able to do is snap a photo of the back of the switch panel. Let me know if this helps. If needed, we have the correct replacement switches as well as the light. The on/off switch is part # LC226018, the extend/retract switch is part # LC226023, and the light board...

  • Recommended Electric A-Frame Jack for 2006 Eclipse Attitude 21AK Travel Trailer
  • When selecting a powered tongue jack for a travel trailer like your 2006 Eclipse Attitude 21AK it is best to over-spec the jack, meaning to select one that has more weight capacity than you absolutely need for the trailer. The Attitude 21AK has a specified weight of 6100-lbs so I suggest a tongue jack rated for 3500-lbs. This will let the jack work less hard to do the lifting it needs to do and that tends to help such items last longer. If value is a key factor in your decision go for...

  • Troubleshooting LED Light on Lippert Power Tongue Jack LC285318
  • I have to agree with you that it sounds like something is wrong with your Lippert powered tongue jack since the courtesy light should go off completely when the switch is in the off position. I suspect that there is trapped water inside the switch that is both maintaining a connection even when the switch is off and also preventing full power from reaching the light when it is switched on. You can try removing the cover/switch panel to allow that moisture to dissipate. This will best...

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Power Tongue Jack LED Lights Staying On With Switch Turned Off
  • Since this is a brand new jack you shouldn't be experiencing problems. I spoke with my contact at Lippert who said he hasn't heard of this being a very common issue and your best bet is a bad ground or a new switch. It is also possible that you could get the unit swapped out for a new jack if it is still under warranty. I recommend checking into that first. If the LED lights on your Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 are still illuminating when the switch is off then you either...

  • Upgrading Discontinued Lippert Trailer Jack 181794
  • The Lippert electric trailer jack 181794 was replaced by the Lippert trailer jack part # LC285318 with a 3,500 lbs capacity and 18 inches of lift. The Lippert jack measures 21-1/2 inches from the bottom of the mounting bracket to the very top of the jack and 10-3/4" from the foot plate to the bottom of the mounting bracket. Fully extended it measures 28-3/4 inches. Since you want a jack with a higher capacity, I recommend Ultra-Fab jack part # UF38-944014. The Ultra-Fab Jack gives you...

  • Troubleshooting Lippert Electric Jack That Works Intermittently
  • If your Lippert Electric Trailer Jack # LC285318 is working intermittently and you have already checked to ensure your ground is good the next thing you will want to check is the wiring to ensure there are none that are damaged or loose, and then check to see if the in-line fuse is blown. If so, you need to replace it with a 30 amp ATO (blade) fuse. Should those check out the other possibility is a bad switch, as you mentioned. The replacement is Replacement Extend / Retract Switch Assembly...

  • Troubleshooting Manual Adjustment Nut for Lippert Electric Trailer Jack
  • The Lippert Electric Trailer Jack with Footplate - A-Frame - 18" Lift - 3,500 lbs - Black # LC285318 does not yet have a replacement nut available. I reached out to Lippert and they said many people have used impact tools on them instead of the manual handle that comes with it and have damaged that part but they don't yet have a fix for that as it wasn't designed for that use. At this time there is no replacement available, so you would need to replace the entire jack. I've linked the...

  • Lippert A-Frame Power Tongue Jack Extends But Does Not Retract
  • When an electric jack has the opposite problem of yours - when it will retract but not extend - the cause is often electrical. Since it takes much more power to lift a trailer's weight than it does to allow the jack to lower, which benefits from the assistance of gravity pushing the trailer down, that is the more common issue if the battery (or other power source) cannot deliver enough current to support the motor's lifting effort. Since your jack will extend but not retract I tend to think...
